We had our first venture to the woods this term and what fun we had! The weather was absolutely glorious and as the sun shone, we had had the opportunity to talk about our shadows as we walked across the field.
The children seemed to take the small change to our normal routine in their stride which the grown ups were pleased with especially as this was the first time many of them had experienced our woodland play.
As usual, once we were in the woods we gathered together in the willow circle to talk about the ‘rules’ and how to keep ourselves safe whilst we played, we were very impressed with how quickly everyone learnt how to move safely and hold the sticks carefully.
A new addition to our weekly exploration to the woods is a hand washing station! Kath fashioned some soap filled tights and hung them from a tree where we could all practice washing our hands!
